Track Name: All Tore Up
Have you ever got jealous
Restless or weak
Have you ever had too many before you go to sleep
Have you ever got crazy all by yourself
Thrown yourself a party with the bottles on the shelf
Well now I'm really steaming
I can't see straight
Because I'm all tore up on some liquor that I hate

Feeling so suspicious you sneak into bed
"Don't worry darling it's all in your head"
But when you really love somebody
What can you do
It can only make you crazy trying to figure out the truth
You better hurry up baby
I ain't gonna wait
I'm all tore up
Honey give it to me straight

Waking up hot
Sun in your eyes
Calling in sick cause you can't even drive
For a working man living check to check
There ain't nothing worse than waking up a wreck
I tell ya good people it ain't worth the fight
You'll get all tore up by your baby in the night
Track Name: One More Time
Here we go one more time
One more left to show you
One more left to hide
One more I forgot about
One more I can't find
Here we go one more time

Can't tell you what's tomorrow
Can't tell you what's tonight
Can't tell me it ain't already been said a hundred times
Here we go one more time

There's someone writing letters
Someone on the line
Somewhere left you gotta go
but it's too far to climb
Here we go one more time
Track Name: Ain't It Hard
Someone outside waiting at the window
Someone outside beating on the door
as you drop your second written notice on the floor
And you can't get money for your landlord
and you can't put money in the band
and you can't get money from your mother

and it's hard seeing yourself
ain't it hard seeing a judge
ain't it hard when you get up
ain't it hard being a drunk

and your friends are always looking worried
so you tell them what they want to hear
and they haven't seen you in the daylight in a year
You blacked out driving with your lights off
so they took you threw you in the clink
because you ran into another mailbox
Track Name: Back Of My Mind
In the back of my mind
where it all went wrong
In the back of my mind
you were there all along
In the back of my mind

You make time
draw the line and you see
Make time
Draw the line and you're free

In the back of my mind
I believe in love
In the back of my mind
I have had quite enough
In the back of my mind
Track Name: Halo
so way back when
I loved you then
I love you now
you don't see how
you stay with me as always
like a halo around my heart

I won't be scared
if you're still there
I'm fine with you
if you are too
you stay with me as always
like a halo around my heart
Track Name: There Was A Fire
they burned everything that they could
there was a fire
there was wood
can you be serious
be more ambiguous
life got the best of us
no one seems to know

suddenly everything I say is true
suddenly everything reminds me of you

they turned everything that I meant
into a long tight rope
and there I went
can you be serious
be more ambiguous
is this threat continuous
no one seems to know
Track Name: Rip It Up, Tear It Down
every february i get sick
I tell you it's the only thing that sticks
probably the same for other folks
gotta be some kind of cosmic joke

orange juice and throat spray by the bed
fever dreams and asprin in my head
peering down into the empty cup
what an awful chore just to get up

every day you wake is still a gift
I had to get someone to fill my shift
at least this year I have the surest way
to hold my baby on valentine's day

lying there not getting any rest
the weight of stress and junk food in my chest
seems the flu gets worse like every time
it's just my pessimistic frame of mind
I don't even like the way this sounds
I want to rip it up and tear it down
Track Name: Fading
You are fading from my eyes
You are fading from my life
I believe that it's true

Loveless recess
Reckless in mind
I'll be ok when I die
I believe that it's true
Track Name: Turn Halfway Again
I don't care where you have been
turn halfway again
to feel the light that shines through the ether and on your face
I don't think that I could swim
unless you are in my sight
does the water keep your heart from hearing

if I could somehow forget
the words I have read and seen
I'd still believe
we were built for another reason
I was out and I gave in
I stopped looking then you smiled
the clock stopped dead
why is the sidewalk shaking

I don't care where you have been
turn halfway again
to feel the light that shines through the ether and on your face
I think we could learn to swim
it's always been you're right
and I am yours
let the water keep your heart from sinking
